Chef's tip:

Foods that contain protein, like meats and dairy products, can make you sick if they are not handled carefully. Anything from a mild bellyache to serious runs and puking may be the price for not keeping these foods cool and clean. Washing your hands, and storing protein foods covered and in the refrigerator can help keep you bellyache-free.
